The truly shatterproof screen is a little bit like the flying car: It’s been promised for years, but never arrives. Scientists at University of Akron claim they have cracked the code, so to speak, by creating a super-tough screen out of transparent electrodes.
A brain-computer interface is a nice thing to dream about, but it’s not exactly around the corner. We are always getting closer, however. Newly developed carbon microthreads could serve as the long-lasting kind of brain implants you’d need to be able to mind-control computers.
If you’re the kind of destitute scientist who drinks Franzia but has a couple of high-powered titanium electrodes lying around, you’re in luck, because a short blast of electricity can vastly improve your swill.
